The Palm Beach show continues to grow in popularity.

This year’s Palm Beach International Boat Show will showcase more than $1.2 billion worth of yachts and accessories, including hundreds of boats ranging from 8-foot inflatables to superyachts nearly 250 feet in length.

The show, which takes place along Flagler Drive over the course of four days, will offer free docks for visitors who come by boat located south of the in-water displays.

There will be 25 yachts larger than 150 feet among the 1,000 boats in the show, organizers said, and a display of exotic cars.

The Windward Club VIP Lounge will feature an open bar, lunch, tapas, wine and champagne tastings and events by Royal Poinciana Plaza tenants like Capris and Maris Collective.

The AquaZone, presented by Informa U.S. Boat Shows and Nautical Ventures Marine Superstore, will hold live demos of fly boards, electric foil boards, SeaBreacher submersibles, personal hovercraft, Seabobs, paddleboards, water bikes, kayaks and SUPs.

Free seminars by the International Game Fishing Association will teach adults and teens recreational fishing skills, from the basics of tackle and knot tying to rules and regulations, fishing safety and sportfishing techniques. In addition, Hook The Future hosts free fishing clinics for kids 4-16 on Saturday and Sunday afternoon at the Meyer Amphitheater Field inside the show.
